Yes, that's feather and fan. The row should start and end with the same number of stitches. There are 6 k2tog and 6 yarn overs per repeat. You don't drop the yarn overs on the next row.
The problem might be that you don't have the 6 k2togs that happen when you finish up one repeat and start the next repeat. The pattern will be
Row 3 K1, *K2tog, k2tog, k2tog, (yo,K1)6 times, K2tog, k2tog, k2tog, K2tog, k2tog, k2tog (yo,K1)6 times ...
If you still have this on the needles, look at the stitches and name them as they should appear and see if that's causing the problem.
It may also be that you're not consistenly leaving out a group of 3 k2togs but randomly missing some. That'll throw off the stitch number and give you extra sts because of the yarn overs.When you start this again, mark off the cast on sts in groups of 18 (after the k1, that is). That should help you keep to the correct repeat.
